So I had an epiphany this morning that I wanted to have probably already had this one so humor me!

Whenever I go to the store to buy baby supplies, I can always tell where the girl stuff ends and the boy stuff begins because of the color change from pink and purples to blues and greens...and then there's the unisex rack full of yellow. So I pondered that for a while...because I am not really a pink type of person. I can and will live with it but if you ask me what my favorite color is, I promise it won't be pink.

But why is it that everything you can get for a baby girl has the color pink or purple? Hmmm...and then it hit me. As a baby, you can't tell a boy from a girl so the clothes are the only ways to distinguish between the sexes and let people know who walk up to talk to you, that you are holding a girl, hence the the pink hearts all over her top.

Its so true, girl stuff is mostly pink. I would have been in the same state of mind if I was having a girl. Good luck though! I'm sure pink will grow onto you, eventually :)

So true! My niece had to wear pink or purple until she was about 3, she was a slow hair grower so everyone always thought she was a boy!!! You will also have those certain people that will always come up no matter how much pink you have on her that says oh, what a cute little boy, what is his name!!! UGGG, do you not see the pink bow in her no hair and her bright pink onesie!!!! It amazes me how many people do that!!
